@5:00. the top five stories making news at this hour. the government now being sued accused of covering up details and being neglect in the shooting of two immigration and customs enforcement agent. he was shot dead in 2011 in mexico by members of a drug cartel. his partner victor avila was seriously wounded. they say the guns were smuggled to the u.s. as part of a failed gun operation and the agent should not have been sent on such a dangerous mission. >> chuck hagel narrowly cleared his first hurdle. the senate committee had a 14-11 party line vote. >> the feat of this nomination say he is leaderless as we have budgetary challenges and we are engaged in combat operations overseas. >> the performance before this committee is the worst i have seen for any nominee for office. he refused to answer a straight forward question as to whether the surge was a success or not. >> hagel's nomination heads for a vote in the full senate. jim imhoff has threatened to filibuster his nomination over concerns about views on israel and iran. a live look at pope benedict xvi holding a weekly audience at the
the current minimum wage that the fed, federal government outlines has higher unemployment than those states with lower minimum wage. look, it's simple economics, something which this current administration doesn't understand. when you raise the cost of labor, you have a surplus of labor, that's true in comments, stocks, whatever. when you have a surplus of labor, what do you have, brenda? you have higher unemployment and simple as that, this administration doe't understand. >> so what do you think of that, caroline, would this help or hurt unemployment if we just got rid of the minimum wage? >> well, i think that would be a terrible idea and i disagree with gary b. actually those studies have experienced-- that's a relationship, other variables causing those differences because two decades of rigorous research indicate he when you do it in a planful way and mild way and raise the minimum wage that it has a positive effect on the local economy. positive effects in terms of lower training costs and turnover and less lost time at work and dedicated employees, so small businesses, mid size and
to school on government money but is against government. aside from the awkward drink of water, i think his real problem is that it was the wrong night, wrong city. tuesday night in washington, wednesday night in new york. there is a place called the apollo. amateur night on wednesday night at the apollo. >> ouch. that hurt me in the crossfire. lawrence o'donnell. >> it was a major proposal that he kept under a certain wracked by not mentioning the number. he said that he was willing, in this negotiation, to avoid the sequestered and offered to the republicans' medicare cuts. he did not specify an amount, just the same amount that the bulls commission wanted. he suggested arriving at them in very vague ways, one having more affluent seniors play more. there are a variety of ways to do that. one of them, probably were most of the savings would be, to change the nature of medicare payments from a fee-for-service system, which is very reassuring to the patience, to something that he was very vague about but was probably an overall fee for a patient in which the doctor, many would argue, begins
and government-planning messages in the history. still more infrastructure, even capping climate change and all i wanted was full fledged tax reform or maybe the keystone pipeline. the left wing greenies pulling out all the stops and warning the president not to go there. some celebrities even got arrested froprotesting the pipee at the white house today. >> and the head of the unions wants more and more of our taxpayer money and he's threatening any democrat who doesn't go along. and guess who facebook executive mark zuckerberg is throwing a political fund-raiser for right at this hours? it's probably not who you think. anyway, we're "the kudlow report." we'll tell you later, but we begin right now. >>> first up, so the president proposing more, more government spending on manufacturing, more on housing, education, infrastructure, climate change, green energy. here's my take. if it was going to work all this throwing more, it's going to work to throw the economy up, it would have already worked. it's more of the same from mr. obama but these government planning efforts have never worked. we have
. >> gabby giffords deserves a vote. let's agree right here, right now to keep the people's government open. and pay our bills on time. and always uphold the full faith and credit of the united states of america. >> senator rubio did a great job with the republican address. >> i think the big story of the night is going to be marco rubio's response. i thought that was the best response to a state of the union address that i'd ever seen. ♪ >>> it was a confident and assertive speech and today the president has taken his second term agenda out on the road and to the people. his visit to an auto manufacturing plant in north carolina is part of a larger strategy to get out of washington and go directly to the voters with a clear message. we can't just cut our way to prosperity. >> i believe we reward effort and determination with wages that allow working families to raise their kids and get ahead. >> this followed a re-elected and reinvigorated president last night. pressing home his strong belief that we can fix this. >> raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour. to make high-quality pres
with libyan government officials in the attack. white house official wrote, "secretary clinton called libyan president el-megarif on behalf of the president on the evening of september 11, 2012, to coordinate support to protect americans in libya and access to libyan territory." that angered graham. >> the president of the united states did not make any phone calls to any government official. and libya, the entire period of the attack. he called government officials on september 12, after everybody was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for pushing for this. frankly, the more answers we have gotten i think we have shown here that this was a national security failure. >> late today, president obama said chuck hagel is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. the president says he deserves a vote and predicted eventually he will get confirmed. >> bret: mikes, thanks. we just got word from the pentagon that panetta is heading to california tonight, to monterrey. the ride is also getting bumpy for the president's choice as top spy master. the complication and confusion continu
that the government has to live within it's means and it is costing us jobs and people can't make the hiring decisions to get the going again. >> it has to be both. >> there are a lot of places that we are making investments. you have to invest in education that is down. america is a pothole. there are areas where we do have to bring spending down but through structural reform and in the area of health care. you are right about that, and our country can bring the cost curve down. and the health care bill that was signed into law, we are seeing now, premiums continue to go up across the country and we are hearing that the costs are a problem. i think we have to put that fight behind us. because your point that this is expensive is right. we have to find a way to bring that cost down so it is good for medicare and private employers to their workers. we work together. here is what i don't understand. >> the president does think it is a spending problem. that is what jake carney said. the president has pulled back. he said he would look at eligibility requirements. if you agree we have a spending problem
a march 1st deadline for the across-the-board government cuts known as the sequester. >> this is not a game. this is reality. >> i don't like the sequester. it's taking a meat axe to our government. >> these steps would seriously damage the fragile american economy. >> still fragile enough that four years after the recession the u.s. economy actually shrank in the last three months of 2012. the storm clouds were ready to blow away and washington basically called them back. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. >> if not for indecisive, uncompromising, and polarizing politicians, america's economy could take off again. >> we are producing more energy and america can become an energy exporter. >> we're in the midst of an energy boom and it's lowering the price of electricity and bringing manufacturing back to america. a housing boom fueled by the lowest interest rates in history. and 35 months of private sector job creation. america's future could be great. >> i'd like to focus on what lies beyond the fiscal debate. >> i'd like to, too. but
an expanded vision of smart government to create jobs and revive the economy. it had many important ideas in it. yet, he lowered his sights on the single policy that would both jump start the economy in the short term and create the conditions for long-term growth. infrastructure spending, having tried several times to propose infrastructure bills of around $50 billion, just 0.3% of gross domestic product, the president now further scaled back proposing a fix-it first plan of that repairs 70,000 bridges that are literally falling down nationwide. maybe he thinks this is all he can goat through the american house, but will place a band aid on america's growing cancer of failing intrastructure. a 2009 study of u.s. infrastructure by the american society of civil engineers concluded that we need $2.2 trillion to be spent over five years to bring the nation's roads, bridges, railway tracks, airports and associated systems up to grade. let me make three crucial points. first, this is the big bang. it would be the most effective way to create good jobs. unemployment in the construction industry
that is for of and by the people, not for of and by the government. that is the big battle that we are in right now. we need to make a decision with our eyes open which country do we want to be. >> it's interesting because you made the comparison of ancient rome, and you said this could happen to america s that something you fear? >> i definitely fear it because we are in very much the same position that they were in. so powerful, a pinnacle nation in the world, no competition, going to be there forever, so they thought, and then all the military ex-passionism started and tap purchasing this group and that group. , that requires a lot of people when you capture people to keep them under control and they quickly began to run out of money. then they are looking for any kind of scheme to get money from the people, and the rich people, they have a lot of money so let's come up with some schemes to get their money. that erodes another aspect of confidence and creativity within your society and they just continued right down the path of destruction. >> and that could happen here? >> it's in the process of happeni
and a call for a smarter, leaner government. he talked about bureaucracy reform and trimming bureaucracy. gone was the message of you didn't build that, the government helped you. and the government is not the solution to every problem. there were a lot of policies with big government solutions and taking that message alone, is it typical in a state of the union address to have such a jarring new message that you unveil and does that generally get followed by real policy change? >> i guess i would see it as less of a new message after that. if you look at what president obama said in the inaugural about government on the in american society and contrast that with what was said when he was sworn in. that's the problem am you can look at them as book ends. one say statement and the other a response. what was said last night and what the president said as an inaugural. >> that's interesting as book ends. i think you are right about that. i wonder if you can compare the boldness. policy agenda that was laid out in the speech last night versus presidents past. one of the criticisms is his age
of the union address defending big government and demanding even bigger government. this president thinks the only solution to everything is bigger government. and that might be an effective response to a yay big government speech, but instead it seemed like a non sequitur, because this is the speech that senator rubio's comments actually came after. >> it is not a bigger government we need. >> senator rubio also complained with a sarcastic twist that the president needs to put out a medicare plan already. tonight would have been a good night to do that, huh, mr. president. the problem is the president had just put out a medicare plan, a plan he described in the actual state of the union address that he delivered, even if it wasn't the one that played out in marco rubio's head when he wrote his own speech, and then didn't adjust it to reflect reality. mr. rubio also made a big point about placing himself in the american middle class. >> mr. president, i still live in the same working class neighborhood i grew up in. my neighbors aren't millionaires. they're retirees who depend on social s
and freedom and value of education and power of dissent even with one's only government and the right of the people to their government without ballots and bullets and bombs. the president could with draw the nomination of chuck hagel as defense security. he is so ignorant of the real enemy we face he believe that is iran can be trusted and israel can't. high would be better suited for taking tickets at yellow stone than defending against the treats. ip hope you will call and e-mail your senator to use common sense and while acknowledging that the president has the privilege to name his team. he doesn't have the right to put people on his team that betray the trust of the american people and the people of the world. that's my few. >> most of the over 4,000 persons who are on board of the carnival cruise ship are either home or on the way home. it is going to be a long time before they forget their ordeal. >> more than 4000 people stuck on a cruise ship that is dead in the water. a fire knocked out the ship's power. >> she was crying and said they had power or running water and no way
'll ask top names like bob lutz, obama supporter robert wolfe, and many more. >>> speaking of government meddling, red flags up again about obama care. killing jobs, even government jobs. one of the nation's most prominent surgeons told president obama to his face at last week's national prayer breakfast that he has a much better idea nap surgeon is going to join us this evening. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up, call it the marijuana shocker. the pope is stepping down. pope benedict xvi announced his decision this morning saying he no longer has the strength to carry on with his mission as the leader of the 1.2 billion catholics around the world. here now is news vatican analyst george wiegel. and spokeswoman kathy ruse, now with the family research council. good to see you. i'm not kidding. i think this is the most profound act of humility and something that everybody in the world can learn from. your take? >> i think that's right, larry. this is a man of faith. he's a real disciple of jesus christ. he wants to serve. and when he can no longer serve in the way he's be
. >> senator marco rubio, delivering a combative republican response. >> no government isn't going to help you get ahead. it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create opportunities. it's going to limit them. mr. president, i don't oppose your plan because i want to protect the rich. i oppose your plan because i want to protect my neighbors. >> but it was that unscripted lunge for water that's lighting up social media. the senator made light of the moment by tweeting a picture of the water bottle and cracking jokes on the morning talk shows. >> i needed water. what am i going to do, you know? it happens. god has a funny way of reminding us we're human. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell. live in washington. for the daily fix, chis and chuck todd, chief political correspondent and host of "the daily rundown." two speeches, two different approaches. chuck todd, we see the president on the road today. he'll be on the road the rest of the week. did he muddy up or cover up his middle class message, economic message with that incredible and emotional appeal at the end? >> or woul
. it is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few. that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative, and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation. >> reporter: president obama championing an agenda where government is used to spark the economy, but aware of criticisms that americans can't afford it. >> nothing i'm proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. it is not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad base. >> reporter: the president's opposition immediately accusing him of reckless spending that will hurt the middle class. florida senator marco rubio delivering the gop response in both english and spanish. and after a quick water break, reminding voters that unlike the last republican standard bearer, he is not a multi-millionaire. >> i don't oppose your plans because i want to protect the rich. i oppose your plans because i want to protect my neighbors. >> reporter: there were nods to foreign polic
land a good job? lower taxes and cut government regulations. >>> one of the president's biggest new policy proposals comes with a pretty hefty price tag. it's universal preschool. that is, preschool for every three or four-year-old in the country. the price tag? nearly $200 billion over the first 10 years. however, later on it will cost less. bruce leshan reports the president thinks the benefits far outweigh the costs. >> reporter: high quality preschool like at broadcasters child development center in northwest can cost parents nearly $1300 a month. but supporters say it provides youngsters real social and academic advantages. >> reporter: tell me what you like best about this. >> the activities. >> reporter: d.c. offers 6,000 free preschool slots to residents. >> triangle. >> reporter: and even more conservative states like oklahoma have seen the benefits of giving three and four-year- olds some early education. >> the studies have pretty consistently shown that a high- quality program has really positive consequences for children generally and especially for disadvantaged childr
taxes. >> what do you think was most valuable thing that you gave to the u.s. government? >> the amount of clients and the amount of assets managed by ubs in the united states out of switzerland. >> and that was how much? >> that was 19,000 clients and around 20 billion swiss francs, which is about $19 billion. >> of the percentage of american accounts that you represented, how many would you say were trying to evade taxes? >> my own clients? >> mm-hmm. >> i would say about 90%. >> did people tell you this was their intention when they opened an account? >> it was the unwritten rule. you didn't have to discuss it. people wouldn't fly all the way to switzerland to open accounts just because they wanted to declare their money. >> and as a private banker for ubs, birkenfeld would help his clients invest, spend, and move their money. one example he told us about involved withdrawing cash from a customer's account, buying some diamonds in geneva, and then smuggling them into the u.s. for the client inside a toothpaste tube. birkenfeld claimed it was legal, because the diamonds, he said, were
a smarter government, not a smaller government. it was the economy that dominated the speech including a call to elevate the middle class. >> it is our generation's task to reignite the true engine of america's economic growth. a rising, thriving middle class and that's why we need to build new ladders of opportunity into the middle class for all those willing to climb them. a growing economy that greats middle class jobs, that must be the north star that guides our efforts. [ applause ] >> the president called on congress to raise the minimum wage and put a billion dollars into manufacturing institutes. he's announced he's creating a bipartisan commission to look into voting problems. and he will bring 34,000 troops in afghanistan home as well as press for universal preschool. he did not mention gun control until the very emotional end when he demanded a vote on gun control. >> gabrielle giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. the families of oak creek and tucson and blacksburg and the countless other communities ripped
savings. let's agree to keep the people's government open and pay our bills on time. it's not a bigger government e we need but a smarter government. >> the president's sweeping speech met with stoney faces including house speaker john boehner who came out blasting the president moments ago. >> last night the president offered up more of the same. higher taxes and more stimulus spending. weeks away from the president's sequester and the president laid out no plan. >> the speech we got was par for the course. very liberal, fairly partisan. >> does president obama's post speech tour and his message last night signal a commander-in-chief whose second term strategy is with or without you. >> he sure as heck wasn't trying to bring both sides together. his political calculation last night was i'm never going to e get the republicans to work with me. >> the message of the speech to my ears was speaking over the heads of congress and to congress saying do your job. >> connecticut democratic senator chris murphy joins us. by far the most unforgettable moment was the president's call to action o
toy world. >> we saw with his nomination something truly extraordinary which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. >> senator hagel is an honorable man, he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> john mccain or roy blount are critical here if they don't participate in this filibuster, it seems as though he will move ahead. what's changed from when john mccain thought that chuck hagel was worthy of a nomination until now? >> a lot of it was iraq. >> so is it political pay back? >> it is like a lot of things, it's both political and personal. i think john mccain in kind of brushing back ted cruz was trying to sort of sort out the personal and the political. the problem for mccain is, if it looks like this is purely personal and that it's an attack, then it kind of diminishes his credibility. he's trying to keep the argument on substance, but there's no question for john mccain, it is also personal. these two men were friends, they were part of a band of broth

with something with bigger government or government paying out more money, the republicans have pretty much got themselves into a bind on that, no matter how rational it seems. >> it's also striking to me, bob, when the president really called the gop out for their obsession with spending and cuts and budget showdowns. >> the greatest country cannot keep drifting by one manufacturing to the next. pay our bills on time. and always uphold the full faith and credit of the united states of america. deficit reduction alone is not an economic plan. >> bob, how does he keep the momentum from that speech last night and turn it into action? >> he's got to go out there and speak over and over and over again. he's got to explain the chief to the american people. he knows that the austerity that the republicans want to adop here would send this into another session. he also knows that the republicans are going to oppose him every step of the way on things like minimum wage. he's got to go out there. this is not just about prodding the congress and trying to move stuff now. this is about changing the politi
think they see more government, more spending and they flinch from it. it is a very popular issue. i think it was a smart one for the president to pick. i've heard some theorizing that he may be setting up some kind of a deal on a very popular program that republicans can sign on to. give again, to go back to the question of letting down the base that wants no entitlement cuts, maybe you introduce new things into equation and say we have this great new early childhood education program but we are going to have to do some benefit cuts, chained cpi and it will be kind of some sugar to make the bitter pill go down more easily. i don't know that republicans are there yet. i still think republicans are looking to shrink government. they see perhaps like this and they recoil and they say it's big government and there are better ways to do it. it would be nice to see some agreement on this because these programs do seem to have a lot of empirical evidence of their success behind them. >> the details are sparse on exactly what the program would entail but it looks like it would be more of th
